  • Light and airy property in quiet cul-de-sac location, a few hundred yards from the village centre and its pubs, shops and cafes
  • Wide decked terrace overlooking the lawn and wonderful lake and mountain walks from the doorstep
  • A lovely holiday home in a village location
Property code: LCC76

There’s space for your whole group in this handsome Lake District property that sleeps eight guests. The accommodation, which is dog-friendly, by the way, makes a wonderful base for walking, biking and boating retreats, conveniently situated in Coniston with all sorts of southern Lakeland adventures on your doorstep. You can view the most popular local fell, the Old Man of Coniston, from the comfort of your private garden, plotting hiking excursions yet to come whilst sipping a cool drink in the summer. At each adventure’s end, the amenities of Coniston await (0.5 miles). Have a meal out or a drink in the popular microbrewery before heading home.

The property benefits from a traditional layout with communal spaces downstairs and all four bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor. There’s also a convenient shower room on the ground floor, ideal when coming home muddy after a long walk. Use the inviting lounge through the summer and the winter, throwing open French doors onto the decking when the sun shines or switching on the gas fire when it’s colder. The fire creates a warm, inviting ambience that you’ll love after a hearty dinner prepared in the next-door kitchen and enjoyed in the separate dining room.

Whether you wish to head out on your own or join a group, there are plenty of exciting pastimes to be discovered close by. With the help of an activity centre less than 0.5 miles away, try your hand at gorge walking, climbing or abseiling or head down to Coniston Water (0.5 miles) to get stuck into kayaking, canoeing and raft building. Those who wish to head out on the water yet stay dry whilst doing so will love renting a boat or taking the ever-popular Victorian steam yacht.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in an excellent cottage, ideal for families in all respects. Although it is situated within 200 metres of the centre of Coniston, we found the area peaceful and very quiet with lovely views of the surrounding countryside from all directions. Highly recommended.

The pictures really don't do this cottage justice. The cottage has a great warm feeling and is so well equipped- we needed for nothing. The garden is a fantastic addition to the cottage offering an enclosed, secure and clean place for children to play. We would recommend and hopefully return next year.

Lovely comfortable and well equipped house. Although there were only four of us this house is spacious enough for its capacity which is eight (a rarity in my experience). We had the heaviest snow dump in 30 years and we were unable to use the car for several days so the village centre location was a real bonus. The owner checked in with us to see iRead moref we were OK and to check if the house was warm enough (if was). Only small gripe was that we were left with only two half used toilet rolls. Hide
